STUDENT LIFE

Joy Hammond is a senior Social Work major a Spanish Minor. She is involved in a lot on campus, to name a few, Social Work Club, Messiah Student Ambassadors, and volunteer writer for the Swinging Bridge magazine. “I went to a private school for ten years before going to a public high school. We had a dress code that we had to follow at my school. I learned how to express myself while still following in line with the rules. I coordinated my colors, jewelry, and hair accessories.” In high school she played around with her style, getting inspiration from the Disney channel before settling on the casual classy style she wears now. “I like to keep my fashion style simple and appropriate, whether that is a patterned outfit with no jewelry and just a hairdo or a plain colored outfit with earrings and a necklace. I also like to wear scarves and lightweight jackets because I am always cold.” Her mom gave her the ring to celebrate her high school graduation, it is a tradition in her family. She wears it proudly every day. “Most of my clothes either came from Khols, thrift stores, or hand-me-downs from friends and family. Khols is a great place to buy new and trendy clothes-It's where I get most of my outfits and jewelry. Thrift stores are a lot of fun because you can get a great price on some nice outfits.”
